Should I have worries drinking rheinländisches Leitungswasser? It tastes namely quite well, so I drink quite a lot of it. Prefer some types of bottled water though, but is the tap water here good enough to not worry?

Even here in Costa Rica, I've been drinking tap water for years and I never got ill from it. BTW, just for curiosity, here's the current link of the most recent water analysis made on the Wasserwerk close to where I used to live, the Wasserwerk Schnelsen of the HWW (now part of Hamburg Wasser). Most of the trace elements were not detectable, while the rest is safely below limits.
